Yes! Attending Reunion
Residing In: Champaign, IL USA
Spouse/Partner: divorced
Children/Grandkids: daughter Ryann Caroline Grove, born 1984
Occupation: RN - retired in 2011 due to health issues
Junior High School:

moved to Dundee in my sophomore year


I moved away from Dundee when I went to college (the first time) in DeKalb where I majored in graphic design/photography. Then I moved to Champaign/Urbana in 1977 and lived there for 26 years. I returned to school in 1979 and became an RN. I spent 21 years working in a Neonatal ICU and then moved to Connecticut in 2003 where I worked as a Labor and Delivery nurse.
In Feb. 2011 I became unofficially retired when I lost my job due to health reasons. (30 yrs of being a nurse killed my back and knees)

I enjoy nature, camping, movies and good ol' rock and rock music. I still consider myself a free-spirit hippie. I am addicted to my computer and satisfy my artist urges creating content on the Second Life web community.

Unfortunately I have been divorced twice.

Since I retired and became single again, I decided due to financial reasons to move back "home" to Champaign-Urbana IL since my daughter, mother and sister are all there. I am settling in again after the strenuous move in June 2012, so maybe I will make it up to Dundee for our 50th class reunion!

School Story:

I fondly remember Art classes with Mrs. Flowers, being part of the Drama Club and working backstage on sets, riding in the spanish club's homecoming parade car when I was president of spanish club in my senior year, working on the school newspaper, hanging out in the senior lounge listening to Ina-gadda-da-vida, having major crushes on some upper classmen who will remain unnamed, being sent home by Miss Keeler for a skirt that was barely above my knees!
